Have you looked at Zope (http://www.zope.org)? Zope is essentially a
very complete framework for building web applications, written in
Python.

Zope is a long running process, has a sophisticated
authentication/authorization model, and uses acquisition technology to
manage the sort of thing you're looking for. It also has a SQL Session
product to maintain user state across sessions in a SQL database.
